Adam Lind Pesky Pole Home Run Ball Controversially Overturned

Adam Lind hit a ball against the Red Sox Friday night that was initially ruled a home run but was later overturned by the umpires. The ball landed between Pesky’s Pole and the spot on the wall where the yellow line is drawn, making it a foul ball. Here’s a picture of the play caught by NESN:

Luckily for Toronto the play being overturned didn’t impact the outcome of the game as they won 7-6, but you better believe John Farrell would have gone crazy had they lost. The good news is we finally have instant replay to get the calls right. I have an idea for the geniuses at Fenway Pahk, how about repaint the wall? Tomorrow. Thanks.

    Now hold on a second, the pole is the pole. The wall is the wall. The line is on the wall, the ball hits the wall going over INSIDE of the line. How is that not a homer?

    They should just align the two and fix the thing. Move the stripe over a bit
